“But LeBron and there’s a lot that goes unseen at these All-star games by the way – But these two had like 5 1 on 1’s in front of the guys and Lebron was just a maniac-absolutely unguardable. He won every time and I think that’s when we realized. ‘Yeah, it’s still this guy’s league for a long time.’

Even though Kevin Durant due to his height advantage of being 7 foot tall and having a great build, creating fear in his opponents that he is unbeatable in the game, he lost all the 1 on 1’s against Lebron James.
